Everyone is Susceptible to BedBugs?

While some pests might be drawn to dirty rooms or left out food, bedbugs don’t discriminate based on the cleanliness or sophistication of the place. This means that any hotel, motel, or bed and breakfast is susceptible to a bedbug outbreak. What it comes down to is having a fast, safe, and effective way to treat the problem the moment you notice your uninvited guests.

What are BedBugs?

BedBugs?

Bedbugs are small, nocturnal insects that feed on blood. Despite their name, bedbugs can be found in a variety of environments outside of bedding such as furniture, walls, office buildings, college dormitories etc. Recently bedbugs have undergone a massive resurgence and are quickly becoming a worldwide problem.

What Do BedBugs Look Like?

Adults are small, brownish insects, just under a ¼” (5mm) long and are relatively flat. They are nearly as wide as they are long, and oval in shape. Immature bedbugs (nymphs) resemble the adults, but are much smaller and lighter in color. Newly hatched nymphs are translucent and are no bigger than a pinhead (1mm).

How Do I Identify BedBugs?

    1. Eggs are pearly white and only 1mm in length
    2. First stage immature bed bugs are light colored, translucent, and only 1mm in length
    3. Immature bugs go through five developmental stages becoming darker with each stage
    4. Adult bedbugs are approximately 1/4″ (5mm)  in length and are reddish-brown in color

BedBug FAQ's

Most frequently asked questions and answers

Bedbugs need to be introduced into an environment. They do not jump or fly but are excellent hitch-hikers and can be transported on clothing, luggage, used furniture and various other objects. Risk for bedbug exposure increases in several of the following situations:

    • Purchasing or using second-hand furniture and mattresses
    • Entertaining or being an overnight guest
    • Staying in hotels, college dormitories, boarding schools
    • Children coming home from summer camp

The most reliable way to confirm you have bedbugs is to contact an entomologist or pest management professional and have them identify a sample collected from your home. However, there are key warning signs that you may have an infestation:

    • Going to bed and waking with bites, welts or rashes. Bite marks may appear in a rows and clusters.
    • Dark spotting or blood droplets on mattresses or bedding. These are waste products bed bugs excrete while digesting a blood-meal.
    • Visible observation of eggs, molted insect skin, or the insect. The failure to locate an insect does not indicate they are not present. Adult bed bugs are difficult to locate and immature bedbugs can be difficult to see due to their size.

No. Although bedbugs carry over 28 human pathogens, there has been no documented case of bedbugs transmitting disease.

The medical concerns of bedbugs are typically limited to the itching and inflammation associated with their bite. The bite effects are similar to allergic reactions and can vary from itchy welts to a severe and painful rash that requires medical attention. Often, the emotional trauma associated with discovering a bedbug infestation is considerable.

There are several steps that can be taken to minimize the risk of infestation:

    • Carefully inspect or avoid second-hand furniture, mattresses and bedding
    • During hotel visits, do not place luggage on the bed or furniture until you have inspected the bedding, mattresses and headboards
    • When traveling, periodically inspect your luggage and bag
    • Encase your beds with bed bug proof en-casements such as, Protect-A-Bed bed en-casements

Upon discovering an infestation, contact a licensed pest management professional to evaluate your problem. You may want to AVOID discarding bedding and mattresses as this can spread the infestation throughout the house. Also, AVOID attempting to resolve the issue yourself as improper treatment could spread the problem throughout and increase costs to eliminate the problem.

Bedbugs were a common problem during WWII. The use of DDT insecticides nearly eradicated the insect from North America and they have not been a significant problem for nearly 50 years. Although changes in pest management practices and increased international travel may be blamed for the resurgence of bedbugs, the lack of public awareness may be the primary reason these bugs continue to spread at their current rate.

No one knows what caused the resurgence of bedbugs in the US. Contributing factors may include:

  1. Worldwide increase in bedbug activity, more frequent introductions during international travel
  2. Changes in pest management practices & resistance to pesticides
  3. Lack of public awareness is perpetuating the continued dispersal of bedbugs

Bedbugs were a common problem in the United States up through the World War II era. Around this time, they were virtually eradicated from the US with the wide scale usage of pesticides, such as DDT and Marathon. During the late 1990’s, bedbugs began to re-emerge as a pest in the United States, Canada, Australia, the UK, along with a number of other countries. Their secretive behavior, coupled with a lack of public awareness, has enabled this insect to move very efficiently from one dwelling to another and has facilitated their rapid dispersal throughout the country.

While no one can say what caused the resurgence of bedbugs in the United States, there are a number of factors that have probably influenced the re-emergence of this difficult pest. There has been a general increase in bedbug activity on a worldwide basis over the past decade. Due to the increased prevalence of bedbugs worldwide, the frequency of encounters with bedbugs during travel is also likely to have increased resulting in a greater number of introductions into the US than in the past. Most of the early introductions appear to have been associated with travel as many of the early infestations in the late 1990’s was identified in hotel guest rooms.

It is also likely that changes in pest management practices coupled with the development of resistance to modern day pesticides has contributed to the successful re-establishment of bedbug populations in the United States. In the past, hotel guest rooms were typically treated on a regular basis with residual pesticides. As a result, bedbugs introduced during travel were likely to contact pesticide as they left the luggage and traveled to the bed. During the mid-1990’s, there was a dramatic shift in pest management practices. Routinely scheduled treatments of baseboards in hotels, motels, and apartments were replaced with targeted applications of baits for pests such as ants and cockroaches. With the absence of the residual pesticide applications, bedbugs are able to travel freely and safely from the luggage to the bed, and successfully begin an infestation. It is likely that these factors have played a role in the bedbug’s ability to become re-established in the United States.

A continuous cycle of non-stop feeding.

Bedbugs eat from the beginning of life until they die. All stages of life they bite and they will not stop until they are killed or die.

Bedbugs are the ultimate "hitchhiker", and with today’s ability to travel the world they are not going away.

Why Chemicals Do Not Work!

Using chemicals has become the norm for pest control companies and other businesses. But chemicals leave behind a residue that can be hazardous when someone is exposed to too much or for too long.

In fact, in 2012 the CDC — the Center for Disease Control and Preventionissued a warning about the dangers of bedbug pesticides and the dangers that can come from using too much pesticide or exposure to these chemicals.

Chemical treatments require, on average, 2.6 visits to completely eliminate a bedbug infestation. On top of that, industry data, scientific research, entomologists, and pest control experts have confirmed that the use of chemicals and insecticides for bedbug eradication is becoming less and less effective. That’s because bedbugs and other pests have evolved, making themselves resistant to certain chemicals by growing thicker exoskeletons or walking on their hind legs to better avoid over topical powders. 

But, in many cases, using a heat treatment for bedbug eradication is effective in just one use with a median of 1.3 visits across the industry.

For years certain chemicals were successful and later discontinued or banned. Another generation of chemicals and compounds has replaced them and been used for several decades. Now entomologists are finding that bedbugs are becoming resistant to many of the commonly used chemicals. The typical suggestion is to increase the toxicity and amount of the chemicals being applied.

The genesis of most pest control companies is the chemical industry. The use of chemicals and the licensing of them for eradication has been the accepted standard process against a myriad of pests. However, that is not the case with bedbugs, according to current scientific research and field applications of chemicals

Did you know that bedbugs and other pests are building up a resistance to different extermination chemicals? This means that the chemicals need to be stronger or continually reformulated in order to keep pest problems under control. Industry data, scientific research, entomologists and pest control experts have confirmed that the use of chemicals and insecticides for bedbug eradication is becoming less and less effective.

Bedbugs are now resistant to many of the current chemicals being used, and some strains have even grown a thicker exoskeleton that prohibits chemical effectiveness. Some strains can even walk on their hind legs over topical powders so they have no effect in contacting the body.

Heat is the one thing that bedbugs cannot SURVIVE

Bedbug experts are finally realizing that the most effective and chemical-free way to get rid of any pest or bedbug problem is through temperatures they are unable to withstand.

Lethal temperatures for bedbugs range between 122° and 135° Fahrenheit.
